Review, Everyday Minerals & Aromaleigh


I cannot say enough about this company's (totally) matte mineral base!
I've had such good results that I am hesitant to even try anything else!
My specs;
47, sun damage, under-eye alligator wrinkles, forehead wrinkles, loss of elasticity, some large pores, melasma on brow-bones, cheeks and lower left jawline.

I've had Melasma for years, starting with my second pregnancy in 1987. About 5 years ago, I noticed that my spots were growing into patches and that the patches on my brow-bones were taking on a different texture- hard/tough, almost callus like.

My cleansing routine; Make-up removal with Queene Helene Natural Cocoa Butter Moisturizing Oil, followed by cleansing with either Swisspers Supreme Exfoliating Pads with Jojoba or Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Cleansing Pads. (I like Swisspers better)

One month after using EDM matte base and my melasma has faded by about 75%!
I'm not a dermatologist, however, I'm pretty sure that there must be some ingredient in non mineral foundations that was staining/aggravating my melasma.
I cannot think of any other reason as my routine has been the same for years.

After 1 month of EDM matte (medium beige neutral), the fading of melasma is extreme enough for me to move down a shade to matte light medium!

While I love EDM matte base, their eyeshadows and blush are just plain boring.
Enter- Aromaleigh Cosmetics and Aromatics!

Love, love, love Aromaleigh!
I have literally thrown out all my non mineral cosmetics because I believe in Aromaleigh products!
In 2 months time, I have acquired over 100 full size eyeshadows alone!
By far, my favorites are from the Aromaleigh Rocks! Sonic Eyes Collection.

My God 100 full size! That's fantastic. I've been buying SheSpace minerals. I like all their colors. I just haven't used them. I usually buy the samples. The only bad thing is that they are in baggies. That's amazing about your brown spots fading. I have one on my cheek that I hate. I use a cream to lighten it. Hasn't really worked. I've had that same spot for too many years to remember.
